I have no idea what species of Peony this is, but I loved the way it glowed!

Thanks so much once more for all your wonderful comments.

It's Friday and the weekend starts tonight!

Have a good one!

Almost as if caught in a spotlight, Carol: it resembles a pinker version of "Bowl of Beauty" but I don't recall seeing this species. Whatever it is,you have captured and presented it so well.

It was growing near the Bowl of Beauty plants Ronnie, so maybe a species of this?
